Zlatan Ibrahimovic tallied his first goal of 2014 Wednesday. Then he went on and tallied two more.

In his first competitive game of the new year (Paris St-Germain's friendly against Real Madrid notwithstanding) Ibrahimovic notched a first-half hat trick, guiding PSG to a 5-2 rout of Brest in the Coupe de France's round of 64 Wednesday.

Ibrahimovic opened the scoring with a blast off the outside of his right foot from inside the box in the 10th minute. Later in the half, he finished off his hat trick in a three-minute span, shinning home free kick in the 39th minute before completing a counterattack with a mini-chip over onrushing goalkeeper Joan Hartock in the 42nd minute.

Highlights of Zlatan's hat trick are below:

Ibrahimovic, who is not a finalist for FIFA's Ballon d'Or but is for FIFA's Puskas Award, has 26 goals in all competitions this season and leads Ligue 1 with 15 goals thus far.
